Last week I had the pleasure of meeting fellow San Diego blogger, The Seaside Baker. She was sweet enough to bring me an amazing bag of fresh vegetables and herbs from her garden!

I couldn’t wait to get home and prepare a dish with the “Spiky Broccoli” also known as Romanesco broccoli or Broccoflower, a broccoli, cauliflower hybrid!

I combined the Snow Peas she brought me with the Broccoflower for a delicious winter vegetable side dish that went perfectly with my Coffee Crusted Tri Tip on Saturday night!

The chicken stock gives the vegetables great flavor without adding any fat or butter to the dish!
